Georgia Unsecured Promissory Note Template

The Georgia Unsecured Promissory Note Template can be downloaded in either Word or .PDF format using the links near the top of this page. The template is designed to be used to outline the various terms of a loan (principal sum, interest rate, payment schedule, late fee details, etc.). Unsecured notes are not backed by pledged assets of the borrower (in contrast to secured notes). For this reason, unsecured notes typically have higher interest rates than secured ones.
